Hi all, interested in your views. 1960’s architect designed mid century apartment block. One owner at the front of the block recently asked the Owners Corporation for permission to change their door and window for the original wood to aluminium. The OC manager did not consult the Owners Committee and gave approval.
On becoming aware of the impending door/window change following the delivery of the new window, the Owners Committee raised objections and asked for all works to cease while they considered the request. The door/window installation was delayed by one day before the old frames were removed and replaced. The OC manager said that as there was a precedent they could not delay the works.
There is one other unit that had changed their frames to aluminium however the new frames do not match either the original frames or the other unit. We now have three different types of windows/doors on the front of the building (think sliding vs swing and off centred vs centred) so it all looks a bit of a mess.
The OC manager admits that they failed to provide the request to the Owners Committee as they should but says the precedent means that there was no other option.
What can we do? We have asked the OC Manager what they intend to do to resolve the problem but they have been ignoring us.
